Happy Mother's Day

One of our petitions during the Prayer of the Church today:

Look with favor, O God, upon all our mothers.  Guide them as they serve You in caring for their children.  Ease their anxieties as they perform daily parenting responsibilities.  Bring them joy in the privilege of nurturing their children, and fill us, their children, with Your Spirit, that we may obey Your command to love and honor our mothers not only on this day, but always.  Lord, in Your mercy:  Hear our prayer.
